Matthew Broderick recalled tension with the late director of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” John Hughes, and shared points of criticism that Hughes directed at him

Broderick opened up on The Hollywood Reporter’s “It Happened In Hollywood” podcast to discuss the making of the 1986 comedy, and recalled that before Hughes died of a heart attack in 2009 he “was not easygoing in some ways.” Broderick shared a memory of a time on set that he and his fellow cast members “did a costume test early on,” and were quickly reprimanded by Hughes. “Actually, some of us he did like, but some he did not, and I was one he did not,” Broderick said on the podcast.

Broderick remembered the pressure Hughes faced when filming the iconic movie, and said he was “nervous” that the movie “wouldn’t come out right.”

“We were ‘boring’ in our tests,” Broderick recalled, as he revealed what Hughes had said about him. Broderick also described what Hughes’ anger was like, saying he was “Not outwardly angry, but you could tell. He would turn dead. Dead-faced, I would say, ‘What did you think of that?’ And he’d say, ‘I don’t know.’ Just nothing.”
